Do Not Tolerate Nonsense

People, We need to stop patronizing venues (clubs & bars) that hire bouncers that have no respect for alternate lifestyles...
Stop complaining & "Start Making Complaints"
Stop attending these venues, believe party promoters and club/ bar owners alike will notice that there revenue is diminishing and that will force them to do something about this growing problem.
I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to there preferences, likes & dislikes, but don't be disrespectful, as many of our night life bouncers are...
What should be required is that they all have mandatory sensitivity training, with refresher courses throughout the year and the promoters/ owners need to put into effect a "No Tolerance" rule (which would simply state: If you as security in anyway are disrespectful, out of line or overly aggressive you will be let go, no questions asked).
It is really ridiculous to me that these venues are quick to take our money, but not trying to make this a safe space for us... They search us aggressively (like gay is a disease and they don't wont to catch it), they talk to us like we don't matter and we beneath them and sometimes are physically over aggressive (and I've witnessed that a few times).
Stand up for yourselves or this will continue to keep happening, put a end to the hate & ignorance...
And to the bouncers/ security, You are well informed before hand that a gay party is taking place, If you don't want to be around it, Then call out, but don't come and pass your ignorance, hate and stupidity onto one of the most successful group of people in the World, You look down on us, But most of us are highly successful and can probably pay your salaries.

"A Rising Star"

“A FOUR LETTER WORD” http://www.afourletterwordmovie.com/, Hmmm I’m sure a few words came to mind when you read that title but this title happens to be the name of the independent movie J.R. is presently shooting.This gay romantic comedy is slated to be featured at the Tribeca Film Festival and Newfest for 2007. J.R plays “Derek” a guy next door type who is honest in love and shows it in his actions. ”Derek” and his lover “Peter” hit a snag in their relationship when they move in with each other and “Peter” starts to show a controlling side, sounds familiar,lol? This movie is the sequel to “Slutty Summer” which can be purchased at: http://www.sluttysummer.com/buy/ or at Blockbuster, "Slutty Summer" headlined the Newfest festival in 2005 and did very well domestically and internationally. J.R.’s character “Derek” was introduced in “Slutty Summer” and J.R. was elated when he was asked to do the sequel, to quote him “It’s like a pat on the back, to be told your work is appreciated and to know you had a hand in the success of the film.” J.R. is America's Next Top Model/ Actor and is based in New York, his aim is not to be famous, just to make a good living at what he loves to do best “Acting”. J.R. has appeared in various and numerous fashion shows, music videos, modeling, acting and print ads with advertisers like Sears. But his primary focus has always been acting and in his own words “I’m just getting started” !!!
